The Indian Software employees today constitute 10% of the 1, 06,000 workforces through out worldwide and it might move in internal functions for India, like Human Resource, knowledge management capabilities and financials. He also said that it continues to see demand and will leverage the talented people here in India to expand the operations for Offshore Outsourcing process.

Business Process Outsourcing gives great opportunity for vertical expansion as it is fast expanding sector. Apart from India Software Development center, is the most aggressive growing; centers in the Philippines and China which are growing rapidly as well. Still they lack aggressiveness as India Software Development is producing in its own region and center.Further he added saying, the areas where there enter for making deals receives only 2% competition and they bag around 87% of them. These deals are in SAP and Oracle-based programming solutions and are $1million to $25 million in size.

The fledging Offshore Outsourcing India industry is poised to grow more than 50 percent in year 2006 as the country’s IT industry continues to impress the global market with its low-cost, high quality service in Software Development. According to a study by India’s Software Offshore Outsourcing, it will continue to grow and will bring in $22 billion in revenue in the coming three years. There was fear of election, John Kerry he would have pulled the plug on Offshore Outsourcing. After re-election, India’s offshore organizations survived a major scare and now at least for another four years, India’s Offshore Outsourcing industry looks secure.
The study said the cost savings from Offshore Outsourcing would create an additional $30 billion per year in new investments for U.S companies. It also says that up to 15 percent of Information Technology jobs required by American based organizations will be performed in India by 2010. By then, the Indian IT labor force will be more than 3 million, and half of the workers will be performing jobs for American organizations. The Indian firm is delivering high-value, low-cost services. While Indian providers struggle to understand all the intricacies of the United States and European markets, a focus on process, quality, and low cost will make them hard to beat in the long term Offshore Outsourcing market.
